Review: Mercy – Rebecca Lim

Mercy“Mercy in an exile from heaven with shattered memories of who she used to be. She’s doomed to “wake” repeatedly on earth in a new body, each time assuming a new life. During the day she survives in the human world on instinct and at night her dreams are haunted by her lost love, who pleads with her to find him.

But this time is different. When Mercy wakes up she meets Ryan, an eighteen-year-old reeling from the loss of his twin sister, Lauren, who was kidnapped two years ago. Only Mercy and Ryan believe his sister is still alive. For the first time since she can remember, Mercy has a purpose: she can help. So she doesn’t understand why the man in her dreams cautions her not to interfere. But as Ryan and Mercy come closer to solving the mystery of Lauren’s disappearance, danger looms just one step behind.

Will Mercy be able to harness her extraordinary power in time?

The first in a dazzling new series, Mercy masterfully weaves romance, mystery and the supernatural into a spell-binding tale that readers will devour.”

I gotta admit, at first Mercy freaked me out a bit.  I’d gotten Mercy awhile back and forgot what it was about, but remembered I wanted to read it.  So when the readathon rolled around, I tackled it.  So, I didn’t know Mercy was an angel until about halfway through.  I just thought it was creepy this girl was “stealing” peoples lives, even if she was doing it for the greater good.  My creep factor aside, this isn’t your typical angel book.  In fact, angels aren’t brought up much, no wings, nothing you’d typically expect.  It was such a unique look on a familiar subject with strong ties into the mystery and thriller categories.  It kept me riveted, I can’t wait to read book two, in hopes it’ll cover more of Mercy’s angel side.  A side I felt kind of lacked in this book.

Mercy will be released May 17th.  I received my copy as a free galley from NetGalley.

    Nice review. :) I just got this one from NetGalley but I’ll have to wait until I have some time to tackle it. I love a good mystery.

    Wow, this book sounds really awesome. I just read Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick and was in an angel mood when I saw your review, and now I’m thinking about getting this. I like how its different than most angel books, and now I’m intrigued. Very nice review!
